I'm Kristin Barendsen, and my business is Barendsen Editorial. I write and edit copy for corporations, universities, magazines, and book publishers. This site describes my writing and editing services and features a selected portfolio of my marketing writing, journalism, and essays.

Featured Projects 

I'm currently the principal marketing copywriter for the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences, a graduate school offering professional degree programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, nursing, and more. I write copy for the University's websiteblog posts about faculty and student achievements, white papers about trends in education, and scripts for virtual tours, as well as emails and direct mail pieces to engage prospective students. 


I collaborated on writing and editing the book Standing at the Edge by Roshi Joan Halifax, published by Flatiron Press (an imprint of Macmillan) in May 2018.

"Joan Halifax is a clearheaded and fearless traveler, and in this book . . . she offers us a map of how to travel courageously and fruitfully, for our own benefit and the benefit of all beings." From the foreword by Rebecca Solnit
